  • So much fun with friends!

    "We spend a week in this unit with another couple. The unit was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need in a vacation condo. Nice coffee maker a waffle iron, very nice pots and pans. It was very clean and well taken care of. We loved that we could just plug our usb jacks into the upgraded outlets. It was plenty of room for 2 couples. Loved the big fluffy pool towels.nice washer and dryer. The decor in the unit was really cool as the paintings were from a local artist in town, and after inquiring to the owners, Mariah helped us find the studio and we got our very own painting. The ground level unit was nice and had a great view of the beach. Grand Caribe grocery store was very convenient and we found the price fairly close to what we saw in town. We rented a golf cart for the week so we ate at the condo or in town while we were cruising around so did not try the food at the Grand Caribe, but heard their new restaurant Rain is pretty nice. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be returning! We had never used VRBO before so was a little nervous, but the owners Dean & Mariah were so helpful and gave us some wonderful tips that helped us have a wonderful experience."

  • Returning to 'normal' was so hard after the "Sandcastle"

    "I read the reviews thoroughly before finally deciding on this place,. It took us 12 hours to get there, but upon rounding the corner and seeing the first view of the pier and ocean, and then coming in to find not one but TWO gift baskets from Carolyn (one for the second arrivals in our group who would arrive the next day and stay downstairs), we knew we'd chosen the best. The main family room upstairs has high ceilings, is airy and opens onto the balcony...the beach activities from the rental hut made everything special, as we kayaked to the reef almost daily to snorkel, and my personal favorite was the stand up paddle board, which I used to cruise around the docks in our area. And as so many people have said, William the caretaker rocks! He felt like family, but more importantly, he taught my 3 boys (one with special needs, 15, one just turned 18 and one 21) about making the most out of nature. He showed them spear fishing and how to catch fish (as he does daily) with a coke bottle wrapped with twine -- something endlessly fascinating to my husband who always goes. He also does wood carvings! We brought home a stunning sting ray and hammerhead shark sculpture, and coasters he signed for us. He also gave us his coconut demonstration -- how to break one open if you had to survive..and his key lime juice demonstration. Local honey, local brown sugar, key limes....YUM! Marvin, his friend, also helps out and we loved the dogs so much we brought them in to watch tv with us a couple of nights. :) Here's a YouTube video of the coconut demonstration, done inside the tiki hut bar in the yard: https://youtu.be/8spq4qqKhKw SIDE TRIPS: At Carolyn's recommendation, we used Seaduced for the Caye Caulker Day Sail ($100 per person, day trip) to go to Hol Chan, Shark & Ray Alley, and Caye Caulker. The guides were charming and knowledgeable and the infamous rum punch made for a very social group. We made sure to pick a day when cruise ships weren't in port. We used Caribbean Adventures to visit Altun Ha (we had the whole place to ourselves)and Cave Tubing in one day -- Cave Tubing was amazing. And...definitely call Aurora! She came to the house and made a grilled lobster/ribs feast that was less costly than any of the local restaurants. Mamba was our favorite, Rojo's was good: but fair warning - they are EXPENSIVE, as are all groceries. Tip: Using cash will save you 12.5% on tours. This was a special house, lots of wonderful memories."

  • Paradise!

    "We just go back from a week stay at Casa B'Alam and it was simply amazing. The pictures shown are exactly what you get - paradise! We started off our vacation with massages from Wendy - best massage ever - and that set the tone for the rest of the week. Definitely recommend renting the golf carts for the week. Some places are close to walk to along the beach or the main road but would not want to do the walk after dark. Restaurants were good nearby (Jamaya, Rojo (closed Sundays and Mondays), and Rendevous were great) and was definitely worth going into town to Blue Water Grill - did both the regular menu (Snook was amazing) and Sushi night. Amazing snorkeling. Came close enough to kiss the Sea Turtle at the Mexican Rocks. Roberto from Portofino was an excellent guide. Hol Chan was also amazing. Only thing we'd do different is take a plane from Belize City to San Pedro. Boat ride was not fun. On the way in, we were packed like sardines all hot and sweaty and on the way out, it was raining, most windows were closed, and even though we were not packed in like sardines the carbon monoxide filled the inside of the boat and made a couple people sick. Can't wait to go back to the island and we would definitely stay at Casa B'Alam again."

  • AMAZING

    "What a fabulous time. We loved every moment of our vacation. We worked with Trish at Caye Management and she responded to every email within an hour with every detail taken care of or explained. The owner Sally emailed us to welcome us to her home and we were also visited by Mary from Caye Management the first day to check on us and made us feel so welcome. The care takers at the villa Harley and Avia were amazing. We had a party of 9 and we rented Villa La Jolla and Villa Del Mar and we are already booking for next year. The grounds were gorgeous and clean , the views were breath taking, and memories were priceless. By far one of best vacations. Loved Paco's Tiki Bar and Grill and last but not lease.......Toby the villa dog. Your heart will melt and you will try to find away to smuggle him home."
